The 35th edition of the India-Indonesia Coordinated Patrol (IND-INDO CORPAT). IND-INDO CORPAT is being carried out between the navies of India and Indonesia.
In order to strengthen maritime ties, the two navies have been implementing CORPAT along their International Maritime Boundary Line since 2002, with the purpose of ensuring the safety and security of shipping and international trade in the region. CORPAT establishes understanding and interoperability between navies and promotes measures to prevent and stop Illegal Unreported Unregulated (IUU) fishing, drug trafficking, maritime terrorism, armed robbery and piracy. The Indian Navy Ship (INS) Kulish and the P8I Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) participated in the CORPAT. INS Kulish is an indigenous missile corvette.
As part of the GOI – Government of India’s vision of SAGAR (Safety and Growth for All in the Region), the Indian Navy has been actively cooperating with countries in the Indian Ocean region to coordinate patrols, surveillance in the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ), pass exercises, and bilateral/multilateral cooperation exercises to strengthen Regional maritime security.
